The Warriors on Wednesday officially unveiled their eight-game exhibition schedule, highlighted by two games certain to appeal to the bobblehead collector.

All-Star point guard Stephen Curry is the featured doll for the Oct. 24 game against the Nuggets at Oracle Arena, and the molded likeness of starting forward Andre Iguodala will be available on Oct. 21, when the Warriors face the rival Clippers.

Curry is being honored for his selection to the All-NBA second team, Iguodala for being named to the NBA All-Defensive first team. Dolls will be given to the first 10,000 fans to enter.

The Warriors also scheduled a neutral-site game against the Nuggets on Oct. 16 in Des Moines, Iowa, ostensibly a nod to the legion of fans that follow native Iowan Harrison Barnes.

The exhibition season gets underway with a two-game set at Staples Center in Los Angeles, against the Clippers on Oct. 7 and against the Lakers on Oct. 9.
